What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Daniel: “One of my favorite books, When Genius Failed by Roger Lowenstein, takes the reader inside the rise and fall of a 1990s Connecticut-based hedge fund run by the brightest minds in finance. While a large financial institution’s collapse impacts the macro economy, Halberstam takes the reader inside the origins of a major foreign policy blunder – the Vietnam War. The policy was crafted by truly the sharpest minds in Washington and academia and does so with wonderful character building and storytelling.”
